It’s a girl…

Two years ago, last month
My heart was punctured & crushed
I still miss HER  so much

Yet I’m ready for another pup
I’ve waited long enough
My heart’s already filling up

Only she’s barely 3 weeks old
And needs more time to grow
Before I can bring her home

She sent this selfie for show
Said to tell y’all hello
And she can’t wait to run her chateau

My Shepherd

Watches over me
From her field of dreams
Now running wild and free

A year ago today
I watched my Tara slip away
It still feels like it was yesterday

She laid down to sleep
Leaving only memories to keep
That fill me with pride and peace

My Shepherd
Watches over me
From her field of dreams
Now running wild and free

Spring Foward Into Night

I’m not afraid of the dark
I get an early morning start
Sacrificing my fitful sleep
To beat the California heat
When all is still tucked in bed
Getting their snooze on instead
It’s calm and quiet till I walk by
With my shepherd at my side
Waking up every dog in sight
Activating the motion lights

Making the evenings a fine
Time for sipping on red wine
Longer days now filled with work
There’s no time for creative words

Am I still man’s best friend

Yes, and I’ll continue to defend

Does my appearance frighten

Yes, but I promise to enlighten

What if I’m lost out on the streets

We’ll take you in and let you eat

When the abuse stops, what will I do

Find someone worthy to look after you

Why am I cold, lonely and want to hide

I’m sorry our society has been misguided

 

In a a statement issued in 2013, President Obama said “[w]e don’t support breed-specific legislation—research shows that bans on certain types of dogs are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources. And the simple fact is that dogs of any breed can become dangerous when they’re intentionally or unintentionally raised to be aggressive.”
